TERRA
Full Title: Tandem Electrocatalytic Reactor for Energy Resource Efficiency and Process Intensification
Aim:

TERRA aims to develop, from TRL 3 to 5, a tandem electrocatalytic reactor (TER) coupling an oxidation reaction to a reduction one, with thus the great potential advantage of i) saving resources...

Concept:
The TER unit may be used in a large field of applications, but will be developed for a specific relevant case: the synthesis of PEF (PolyEthylene Furanoate), a next generation plastic.
